[ laughter ] >> so it was -- so he was -- had never done a play. and to this day, you know, we talk all the time. we'll go out and he'll say, "man, i don't remember anybody i ever worked with. i don't ever even hang out with anybody i ever worked with. this was like, the greatest thing i ever did." it just changed him. >> jimmy: definitely. he was amazing. >> he was really amazing. >> jimmy: and now, here you are, you're in "glengarry glen ross" with al pacino. [ cheers and applause ] >> yeah. >> jimmy: it's a hot ticket right now. how did that come about? do you know al pacino? >> no, man. i never met him before. and he's my favorite actor. i grew up -- he's my favorite actor of all time, you know? i have posters on the wall, the whole nine. and so, i always had this thing, i've been doing theater for so long in new york. and i always had this joke that al pacino is gonna come tonight. al's coming tonight. al's coming tonight. and then i did a few things that were a little more high profile. and like, everybody was coming. so i thought, well, al's gonna show up. and he never did. and everybody, that became the joke. so any time i'd come to the theater people would be like,
"al's here tonight." and so he never came. and then i sat next to him at the tony's. we were nominated against each other. and they sat me next to him. and i was like, "mr. pacino could you please come to my play. it would mean everything to me." and he's like -- [ as pacino ] "i'm coming. i promise, i'm coming." >> jimmy: that's a good al pacino. >> and he came the very last night. and he came the last night, and he stayed back in my dressing room forever, man. like, for a long time. like, it was -- we were just talking and talking. we got to do something. we got to do something. >> jimmy: it just took a long time. 45 minutes -- [ as pacino ] "talking. very slowly and intensely." he's amazing. >> yeah, yeah. but it's totally the way he talks. and then he'll surprise you with like, an outburst. [ as pacino ] >> jimmy: it's great to be here sitting down here in the seat! [ laughter ] >> yeah, i love that. i love that. >> jimmy: keeps you on your toes. yeah but he's an amazing man. >> it's a little weird over coffee. >> jimmy: yeah. he's just screaming and yelling. >> but then i got a call and they were like, al wants to do "glengarry glen ross," and would love to know if you'd be interested. >> jimmy: and you're playing the role he played in the film? >> that's correct, yeah. >> jimmy: wow, that's pressure.
>> yeah. there's no pressure actually. not at all. it's really funny. i asked him one thing about it in rehearsal. i had a question about blocking. and i said, "hey man, do you remember like, when you guys did the scene in the booth, were you guys both in the same booth?" and he goes, "what are you talking about?" i said, "glengarry glen ross?" he goes, "i don't remember." and that was it. that was the only thing, and i never -- [ laughter ] >> jimmy: that's good advice. >> it was good. if it were me -- there's no pressure, really. >> jimmy: here's a picture of you just admiring al. look at this. [ laughter ] look at that picture. you're just staring, gazing at him. >> i'm like, on my eighth mini orgasm. [ laughter ] yeah, they had this press conference, like second day of rehearsal. so, i still wasn't used to being around him. and they put me right next to him and he talked the most of the time and that's all i did. [ light laughter ] >> jimmy: that's not even al pacino. it's a madam tusseau wax figure of al pacino. [ laughter ] he didn't move the whole press conference. >> but, it was amazing, you know -- you grow up like, thinking about your favorite actor. i did at least. and you're like, you think of the conversations you would have with them, like -- and then, you know, you're a kid and you're like, "oh, al would
understand this. i know he would." and during this whole press conference, i was literally sitting there going -- "oh, my god, he's totally answering all the questions the way i thought he would." it was unbelievable. >> jimmy: it's like you're controlling al pacino's mind. well, you're super duper busy, "boardwalk empire," congrats on that. [ cheers and applause ] they're lucky to have you. >> thanks, thanks. >> jimmy: you play a tough gangster on that? >> yeah, i play a guy named gyp rosetti. he's sort of a new gangster and he wants to, he's got real problems with steve's character, with nucky. and he makes a lot of problems for him this year. he's a pretty violent guy. >> jimmy: we've got to show everyone a clip here. here's bobby cannavale in hbo's "boardwalk empire." take a look at this. >> look who he works for, joe. they building something and it n't include us. who's gonna own this business, huh? hebes and micks and back-stabbing [ bleep ] that don't respect where they come from. and for all the blood we put into it.

[ cheers ] that's one album a month for an entire year. the first album, titled "better stronger faster," will be released november 6th on itunes and amazon. give it up for tom shillue! ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> thank you. all right. i look good. i'm very -- caucasian. [ light laughter ] it's okay.
i'm not very multicultural, i know. i grew up in a very white, irish catholic town. everybody was the same. but that can be good, too. because then every culture that you're exposed to as you grow up is that much more exciting. like, me and my brother would get so excited that one day a week in the summer months, my mother would have -- taco night! [ laughter ] taco night was like a trip to another world. we actually put our guns up -- [ shooting noises ] [ mexican accent ] it's a taco night! and it was just hamburger helper in a frozen taco shell. that was mexican fare to us. tacos with fritos on the side? fritos were mexican, weren't they? what do they put on there? oh, the spicy frito! [ laughter ] fritos. in the '70s, you probably don't remember who the spokesman --
does anybody remember who the spokesman for fritos was in the 1970s? thank you! the frito bandito. the most politically incorrect spokesman in the history of salted snacks. for those who don't remember, the frito bandito was a three-and-a-half foot tall mexican -- thief. [ laughter ] that was the whole concept. in the commercial, he would come into town with guns blazing. he would steal your fritos from you. then he would eat them while you watched. then he would sit down, lean against a tree, pull his sombrero over his eyes and take a nap. [ laughter ] they would never get away with that today. can you imagine the guy suggesting that at the ad agency? the guy would be, like, "uh-huh, i see your boards here. the frito -- bandito. okay, phil, you don't work here anymore. yeah, you got to go right now."
so my whole life was cultural milestones. seventh grade, my first exposure -- my first wonderful exposure to jewish girls. [ cheers and applause ] yeah. you can tell they still like me. [ laughter ] i had only known two jews up to that point in my life. charlton heston -- in "the ten commandments." [ light laughter ] and charlton heston in "ben-hur." [ laughter ] those were my two. i wanted to talk to these jewish girls. so i'm looking over at them, and, you know, they had the dark hair, and they had the eyes. i guess they all had eyes, right? and i'm looking at them, and i'll never forget -- i said to my friend, john mittiga -- he was sitting there with his milk. he was all cocky, you know. i said i want to talk to debbie shapiro and debbie mahler. they're all debbies, you know. and i'll never forget -- he said, "don't even bother.
they only date other jews." [ laughter ] i'll never forget him sucking on that milk telling me i couldn't date jewish girls. i took that challenge. i went up to them. they liked me. just like these ones like me, yeah. you know, i went on dates with -- innocent little junior high dates. you know what those were like. you know, you hide behind a hedge. they walk by after school. you jump out and follow them home. [ laughter ] nowadays, they call that stalking. but i'd go to their houses. their houses were different. everything was different about the jewish culture. they had paintings on the wall with real paint on them. [ light laughter ] we just had the prints of a lighthouse. you know, above the couch. and then these little dogs -- little, fluffy, clean dogs. i'd never seen such clean dogs in my whole life. and they wouldn't let them out. i'd go to the door -- "don't let the dog out!" jewish dogs never went out. [ laughter ] our dogs never came in. "don't let the dog in." that's what my mother used to
say. there was a dog on our porch. i swear to god, i was 11 years old before i realized it was our dog. [ laughter ] wondered what he was doing out there. but i stuck with the jewish girls my whole life. junior high, high school. then i moved to new york -- bounty. [ laughter ] then i got married -- to an italian girl. close enough, right? [ light laughter ] i always say that to my wife. she knows my obsession with the jewish 'cause i always say, "close enough." she doesn't like that. i say close enough 'cause what is an italian girl, but a jewish girl you can take to church? thank you so much. thank you. [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> jimmy: that was good, brother. tom shillue, everyone. his comedy album, "better stronger faster," comes out november 6th on itunes and amazon.
